Monster Products

You can spend hundreds (or even thousands) of dollars on the perfect HDTV, but if you don’t have the right HDMI cable to go with it, you’ve basically wasted your money. Believe it or not, the quality of the cable makes a huge difference. Don’t think about an HDMI cable as just some wire you need to watch HD channels–think about the purpose it serves. The reason you buy one is to connect your HDTV to the cable box to receive high definition channels. If you’re using a low quality cable, the connection isn’t going to be powerful enough to administer the sharp images or crisp sound that you’re looking for.

The game is too important–you don’t want to take any chances. With the Monster UltraHD HDMI cable, you never have to worry about a fuzzy picture (or even worse, a frozen one) again. Their HDMI cables were built to handle large amounts of data coming through, so they can provide incredibly fast speeds. The performance indicator is displayed right on the HDMI cable, so you can see the bandwidth being delivered in real time. Plus, with the Cable For Life® lifetime warranty, you’re guaranteed to always have the best connection, even as technology continues to change.
